Thanks for the encouragement.  It's good to know I'm not alone.

I decided I'd have a go at replacing my window sweeps.  The door panel/interior side is held on with very heavy duty staples.  I got them all off with no problems (besides sore fingers).  I've read that some use pop rivets to re-attached.  Has anyone done sweeps before?  Any opinions on rivets vs. new staples?

To revise a post from long ago, I have a fun set and am about to install mine, any feedback on the method to install?

When I replaced the sweeps on my TBird a few years back, the replacements were intended to be held on with staples.  I used zip ties instead, and I was able to get a much tighter fit to the door panel.  Don't get the ones that are too wide, they aren't as flexible and won't fit as tight.  Good luck!!

I just did the outer window sweeps on my SX/4. They don't fit real tight to my windows for some reason.

Probably don't need the inner sweeps yet, but where do you guys source them from?
